Direct writing of waveguides in polymers with a fs laser — •Welm Pätzold1, Bernhard Kreipe1, Moritz Emons1, Carsten Reinhardt2, Boris Chichkov2, and Uwe Morgner1,21Institut für Quantenoptik, Leibniz Universität Hannover, 30167 Hannover — 2Laserzentrum Hannover e.V., 30419 Hannover

Current advances in the micromachining of waveguides in polymers with fs laser radiation are presented. A laser beam is focused into a fully crosslinked polymer sample to reach intensities for multi-photon absorption. After cooling of the localizes plasma a permanent structural change remains. The goal is to achieve an increase in refractive index that can act as a Type I waveguide. An alternative approach is the formation of Type II waveguides where the light is guided inbetween multiple modified areas.

This method of direct material modification can create virtually arbitrary 3D-paths within a bulk material and is insensitive to the surrounding environment. In the future it shall be used to create photonic structures like e.g. couplers or beam splitters on polymer foils.
